The Gretsch G5421 Jet Club Electromatic Electric Guitar in Firebird Red is a fantastic instrument for working guitarists. Combining solid craftsmanship and elegant finishing touches, the G5421 boasts a confident energy delivered with aplomb by the versatile electronics setup. Everything about this guitar screams high quality, and you're guaranteed a partner for life with the G5421.
The G5421 Jet Club is endowed with a shapely single-cutaway body profile for ready access to the highest frets. The body is built using chambered basswood, which generates an impressive mid-range energy for bold tones. Paired with the basswood is an arched laminated maple top for comfort and to provide sparkling tonal brilliance across the high-end notes. The cool black paintwork is protected by a coating of gloss polyester. With a Jet Club in your hands you can tackle anything, the substantial build quality and lightweight feel allows you to strut your stuff with confidence.
Lightning fast neck
Connected to the body is a sturdy maple neck, which provides a supportive feel in the hand. The 24.6-inch scale length encourages a mellow response from the string with an emphasis on warmth. The neck has been treated to a coating of gloss polyester, which prevents unwanted tackiness from affecting playability for a smooth feel. Paired with the neck is a sublime rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are decorated with stylish neo-classic thumbnail position inlays. The 12-inch fingerboard radius contributes to the effortless feel when executing your technique from fretting chords to throwing in some cheeky bends.
Powerful tonal energy
The G5421 Jet Club is equipped with a pair of Gretsch dual-coil humbucking pickups, which are fitted in the neck and bridge positions. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a 3-way pickup toggle switch, a master volume knob and a master tone knob. Thanks to the tonewood partnership and versatile character of the pickups, the G5421 can turn its hand to anything you wish. Whether you’re cruising through a blues number, taking on some country licks or laying down some epic riffage, you're good to go.
At the top of the neck you'll find the headstock, which is home to die-cast tuning machines that maintain tuning integrity throughout the most demanding of gigs. The adjusto-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece secure each string to optimise intonation and sustain with impressive consistency. The chrome finish adds an elegant touch alongside the black paintwork.
